When I was in Toronto, I made the mistake of riding the streetcar during the morning commute. I was literally sardined!

TTC plans to launch new streetcar route this June

Quote:
Get ready to meet the 514 streetcar route. A report to be voted on by the TTC board next week recommends the introduction of new a streetcar line that would operate between Cherry St. and Dufferin St. This new route would provide transit accessibility for the Canary District, but also relief for the busiest stretch of the 504 King route.

There's been talk of streetcars on Cherry St. for a while, but it's close to reality now. Should the board approve the recommendation, service would get underway on June 19. The new route would be the third to employ the TTC's new low-floor streetcars, which have greater capacity than the vehicles currently servicing King St. right now.

Streetcar ridership has skyrocketed in the last few years.. I wonder how high it will go.

Hmm, I guess that will go in with the streetcar ridership for APTA. I wonder if they'll open another category for it.. Its much more of a rapid transit service than existing streetcars.
